Quickie Ten interview with author Dennis Spielman + Spotlight on The Crashing of Heaven and Hell + Contest!
*snicker* Ok, ok, I’m kinda on a sugar high… but I think even without that you’ll get a kick outa my chat with Dennis Spielman, author of The Crashing of Heaven and Hell. He’s a hoot and made me laugh out loud a couple times. And maybe more importantly, it made me move his book up my TBR mountain. I want to read about his robots and vampires and vengeful gods and more mayhem. Join the fun and make sure you enter his contest too!

Me: Dennis! Come in come in! Get comfy on my red virtual couch and lets chat. It’s almost Halloween. Are you dressing up? Oh! Can I get you a coffee or soda or… *gulp* water?
Dennis: I am dressing up. A friend is doing a Clue themed Halloween event, so I will be dressing up some murder related. Still working that out. I’ll have a Vodka Seven if you happen to have one.
Me: In the library with the wrench?! Fun!
*hands Dennis his beverage and flops on couch* I love costumes! And all things fantasy and geeky. Flash question! Who says “Oh God, oh God, we’re all going to die?”
Dennis: Wash! Actually, the first thing in my mind was “the fox.” That song is corrupting my memories.
Me: Gahhh! Make it stop! Now that song is in my head to… What does the fox say? ieieieieiei nneiienie *head/desk*
Dear reader if you’ve somehow missed the song. Do NOT google it. 😛
So you are on a journey to destroy boredom. I support this goal. *nods emphatically* I had fun playing around on your website! You do lots of very fun and whimsical things… improv, how to host a murder games (Love those!) and photography to name a few. And, You write!
Dennis: Thank you! I do my best to keep my site fun, especially with my self-shot picture series. Did you have a favorite one those?
Tell me about your first novel The Crashing Of Heaven And Hell please. Actors, robots and zombies oh my. I LOVE your synopsis.
Dennis: Yes, The Crashing of a Heaven and Hell is a melting pot of cultures. Basically, one day the Heaven and Hell comes crashing down on a planet where aliens, mystical creatures, monsters, and people live together. It’s a fun adventure where the Gods are trying to get order back to the world through manipulation.
Me: What are you working on now and what are you doing for Halloween?
Dennis: I am working on so many projects. I am working on TV series about a time traveling fugitive actress called, The Time Traveling Troupe. I have another novel, Too Close the Ground, about a teenager who is caught in the middle of schemes involving a liquid demon from Hell. I’m also working on the next edition of my local date idea book. That’s just the current major projects I’m focusing on right now.
As for my Halloween, it involves murder. MURDER. A mystery. A mystery to me. And giving candy to kids.
Me: Meep! you’re busy! but… before I let you go…. you’ve been a darling but the fun’s not done. *drumroll* it’s time for…
Me: Ha! Thank you for playing with me at The Book Tart! I am looking forward to seeing what you get up to next.
Dennis: Thank you for having me! I hope to be able to share my next project with you soon.
Me: Yes please!
